The Brain Region for Balance, Movement Also Involved in Processing Traumatic Memories
The cerebellum is activated in patients using the neuro-emotional technique (NET) to alleviate stress from traumatic cancer-related memories.
Patients diagnosed and treated for a long-term potentially fatal diseases such as cancer, can accumulate distressing and traumatic experiences along the way. A new study from the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health at Thomas Jefferson University examines how the brain is activated when the Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is used to help cancer patients process traumatic memories. The research also adds to the basic understanding of the pathophysiology of traumatic stress in general and the underlying mechanisms involved with resolving it.
“The results of this study are a breakthrough in understanding how an intervention like NET works, particularly in regard to the cerebellum’s role in the regulation of emotional experiences. We now understand that the cerebellum does much more than coordinate motor activity,” said principal investigator Daniel Monti, MD, MBA, Director of the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health who is also a member of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson.
